We need you! For Dressember


Ethical Souls Founder Liz O’Meara has been providing  Fair Trade Clothing to the people of Ireland and beyond since early 2016 through www.ethicalsoulsboutique.com.  The primary goal of Ethical Souls, is to ensure that all factory workers are paid and treated fairly in happy working environment and help reduce modern day slavery.

One of the brands which Ethical Souls collaborates with is Elegantees who make beautiful cotton pieces and provide work and a safe place for women who were involved in sex trafficking in Nepal.   Elegantees have partnered with a global non-profit organisation called Dressember.

What is Dressember?

Dressember has become a global movement to help aid the fight against slavery and sex trafficking of women and children which exists in every country all over the world.

The idea is simple, you as an advocate of dressember wear a dress every day for the 31 days of December. Your journey can be shared on all social media platforms to help raise funds and awareness of the fight against worldwide slavery and sex trafficking.

More information on Dressember can be found here: http://www.dressember.org

How to get involved?

Liz O’Meara wants to create an Ethical Souls Team and would love YOU as a team member?!

All you need to do is wear a dress every day in December and share on social media your dress journey using the hashtags #dressember #dressember2017 & #ethicalsoulsdressemberteam. Don’t worry if you don’t have 31 dresses it’s time to be creative!

Liz says “Let’s see what powerful women can do, if we work together to fight for a world without slavery“

If you would like to get involved please get in touch with Liz on info@ethicalsoulsboutique.com or 085 1537084 and she will do the rest. Once a team is finalised prior to the 1st December a funding goal will be set.

My Happy Place

For their ‘Mind Yourself’ campaign, Independent.ie asked me to discuss my happy place. For me, this request was extremely apt as it was just before I travelled to my ‘happy place’ for the weekend. Every three months or so, I head off on weekend to paradise with a group of very special people I like to call ‘my tribe’. These weekends are a journey of self-discovery while focusing on understanding how Chakras affect youroverall evolution and development. We have completed four of the seven Chakras to date, the Root, the Sacral, the Solar Plexus & last weekend the Heart Chakra.


These weekends can include a combination of different processes such as Meditation, Soul Reconnection, Regression and Past-life regression, Future-life progression, Generational healing, Relaxation, spiritual mentoring, enlightening guidance and most importantly group discussions. Each weekend is different and is completely dependant on the needs of the group during that weekend. Of course, these weekends would mean nothing without our amazing facilitator Michelle Hardwick from Release…Peace with Michelle Hardwick. Over the last year attending these weekends, I have progressed and expanded my awareness of who I am, about my life and about others.
The location is the stunning and tranquil Liss Ard Estate in Skibbereen. Life literally sits still for 48 hours where you immerse yourself in the beauty of this beautiful place, surrounded by amazing people and of course our gifted teacher. I crave these weekends when they are over and long for the next so that I can just ‘stop’ for a little while in this busy, chaotic world and put myself first so that I can completely love myself and be loved.
